    Pros

    One of the funnest, most rewarding experiences I have ever had. The atmosphere of the setting and heavy reliance on Behavioral Health staff demonstrates the agency's and the medical providers value of helping the clientele

    Cons

    Lots of patriarchal beliefs among medical providers - pretty sure this is standard in medical settings.

    Pros

    Learned a lot of new skills in the cancer sequencing field.

    Postdocs have salaries set by the NIH, no retirement, and only 2 weeks of vacation.

    Advice to Management

    Needs paid maternity leave like the grad students have.

    Pros

    There is a strong sense of teamwork and collaboration between departments. Asking for clarification is encouraged during training and continued support can be found as you learn new protocols. They encourage you to find a full time position within the company.

    Cons

    Overall this is a good company to work for. Internship pay is not spectacular, but it is reasonable. There are limited food option at the riverfront location.

    Pros

    Magnet certified, union represented (look on ONA's website for the entire contract, under AURN, which lists compensation tables, etc), competitive pay ($35.23 starting pay for no experience with BSN), 4.8 weeks vacation to start (increasing every 5 years to a max of 7.22 after 20 years), compensation for certification, greatly subsidized bus pass ($50 for a YEARLY pass right now - an $1100 value!), beautiful views, great food (including a natural mini grocery store), bike valet, Tillikum bridge (coming soon!), cash compensation for bike commuters, almost 100% covered medical benefit (dental about $150/mo for family, I pay $7 a month for my whole family's medical), 12% employer contribution to retirement plan w/o required employee match OR access to PERS (or whatever pers is called these days - OPSRP?? - a defined *benefit* program, not a defined *contribution* program) with employee required contribution of 6%, annual 2.25% cost of living raise in addition to annual raise, tuition reimbursement, mostly nice and friendly people, HUGE emphasis on diversity, everyone works every other weekend (might be considered a con but it makes it fair for everyone and with seniority you can request more off. Comes with a 10% weekend differential), unit based practice counsels, lots of free continuing ed opportunities. This company expects a lot but I think gives a lot in return.

    Cons

    Usual corporate bs, usual trappings of nursing culture (worse depending on unit - not enough staff, nurses eating young, etc), parking is $13 a day and there is a several year waiting list for annual passes (which you still have to pay $13 a day for - you're just guaranteed a spot that way), teaching hospital (which is rad, because you get to see and learn a lot, but also you have to deal with new residents every. single. year.)

    Advice to Management

    Hire more CNAs!

    Parking. Hospital being on a hill makes parking very limited. TRIMET buses do run frequently.

    None at this time.
